U2, Norah Jones, Jerry Lee Lewis and Foo Fighters are joining forces to pay tribute to late country legend Johnny Cash.

The rock and pop stars will perform Cash's hits as part of TV special I WALK THE LINE: A NIGHT FOR JOHNNY CASH, which will air in America on the eve of the release of new biopic I WALK THE LINE (18NOV05).

Reese Witherspoon, who plays Cash's wife JUNE CARTER CASH in the movie, will host the evening with Dennis Quaid.
